Medical Scam Alert

We have been notified that there is a scam circulating whereby the caller suggests that they have received medical alerts and that some emergency action is required. The scammer then asks for confirmation of medical history and other personal details.

The way in which the scammer introduces themselves, it sounds as if they are phoning from a hospital or the local medical centre and their manner is very aggressive. In these particular times, this can be very alarming and upsetting to vulnerable people, so please be on high alert and warn elderly relatives, friends and neighbours.

The scammer telephone number is 01865954098 but of course they may use others.
